After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, Jennifer spent 5 years traveling the globe for a sports marketing company and was brought back to Austin working under the dome of the State Capitol as the prestigious Calendars Committee Clerk for the Texas House of Representatives.  After her third legislative session, she decided to follow her dreams and pursue her real estate career.


Being blessed by the unique opportunity to be mentored by top producer and industry leader, Laura Gottesman, Broker/Owner of Gottesman Residential Real Estate, Jennifer learned the ins and outs of the Austin real estate market as well as the importance of relationships, hard work, and integrity within the industry.  She gained first hand experience being involved in the buying and selling of luxury homes as well as marketing each property individually to fit each seller’s goals within the ever evolving Austin market.  More importantly, she has surrounded herself with people whose work ethic, integrity, reputation and knowledge of the growing Austin landscape continue to set the industry bar.


Five years into her real estate career, Jennifer has been blessed to be one of the top producers in the ever evolving Austin real estate market.  In 2019 and 2020, she was awarded the top honor of being included in Austin's Elite 25 and Luxury League. 


Jennifer is grateful for the opportunity to continue to work with incredible people and prides herself in bringing the highest level of professionalism and service to each of her client relationships.  She receives the ultimate fulfillment knowing her buyer clients have found a home they love.  She values these relationships and considers her clients lifelong friends.  Jennifer is known for being loyal and her relationships continue beyond the closing table as she is always eager to help connect clients with friends, designers, remodel ideas, or simply sharing the hot new restaurant in town.  Whether buying or selling real estate, Jennifer’s industry knowledge, passion, work ethic, loyal clientele and customer service help pave the way for continued success.  Out of the office, she can be found skiing on Lake Austin, teaching barre/yoga, and running Lady Bird Lake.

When we were interviewing agents to work with Jennifer was far and above the others we spoke with.  She was so incredibly knowledgeable and helpful when it came to information about different neighborhoods, more details about property taxes and Texas being a non-disclosure state, etc.  Most others I spoke with had a "let me know how I can help you" mantra, when Jennifer had a "here's what you need to know and this is how I can help you" attitude.  Throughout the process she was constantly communicating, sending us additional information, and opening our eyes to areas we hadn't thought of.  The cherry on top was when she showed up at our closing - something we've never had an agent do before!

Amazing!  This word describes the home we found, the experience we had in finding it, but most importantly the person who helped us find it.  A home is more than just where you live and sleep and Jen understands this.  She didn't just send us MLS listings.  Jen sat with us, got to know us and helped us come to the realization of what we really wanted.  I couldn't be happier with our home, and the process we took to live in it.  She'll forever be a part of our family now!

Prior to working with Jennifer we honestly and unfortunately thought being a realtor was an easy job that didn’t require much skill. Jennifer proved us wrong. We now know that choosing an experienced realtor like Jennifer can make a huge difference in your experience and outcome. Choosing a realtor to sell your home can be stressful; between family, friends, neighbors, and local experts you will likely have many options and may feel obligated to one or many. We interviewed all of the above and could not be happier that we chose to work with Jennifer. Jennifer offered her honest, unfiltered opinion of what our house was worth and what we needed to do in order to get maximum value for our home. She listened carefully to our needs and her communication from our first meeting through closing was impeccable. She worked hard throughout the process and there was not a single detail too small for her to address with her full attention. Jennifer flexed her expertise from marketing strategies, listing price, open houses, negotiations, and closing. We had multiple stressful and difficult issues arise throughout our process and it’s likely the deal would have fallen apart if Jennifer was not our agent. We are thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Jennifer and would recommend her to everyone.

I can't explain the gift we were given when Jennifer called and said "I think this is the one", referring of course to the house we would put an offer on the next day before ever coming on the market. Realtors like Jennifer and Laura get to know their clients and what their vision for a home is and then they find it. Our vision was a retreat on some acreage with a guesthouse near downtown Austin. Jennifer kind of kidded us about that criteria when the search began because that's pretty specific and unique. And sure enough we now live in our dream house on 3 acres with a guest house 2 miles from Zilker with everything else and more than we ever imagined for a home for our family. We're forever indebted!

As first time home buyers in Austin's competitive market, we knew having a top-notch agent would be important. Jen's market knowledge and professionalism exceeded our expectations and ultimately found us our dream home. Simply put, we couldn't have picked a better agent.

Buying and selling your home is a very personal and can be an emotional event in people’s lives.  Jen has the unique capability of allowing the experience to be personal but she also brings the knowledge and professionalism needed to complete the transactions.  Her experience and relationships with the realtor community is priceless. She was able to help us not only find and buy our new home off market but also to sell our existing home off the market. Jen has the personality and experience to be the perfect realtor for anyone.
